My biggest struggle in sewing is Inserting a zipper into jeans. I will look at them for 2,3,4 years and then I might finally do it.

My biggest sewing, knitting, crocheting challenge is finding a person who knits or crochets that wants to teach and has a compatible schedule. I’m not good at catching the stitches on video… and reading the patterns from a book… Eeeek

My biggest creative challenge whether knitted or sewn is finishing the project. I get started, work away on the project and struggle to finish before I am distracted by my next project.

My biggest challenge is my lack of focus. I find the perfect pattern, fabric, notions, etc. I get about 1/2 way done and I get distracted by the next perfect pattern, maybe this one is knitted instead of sewn. So I put the first one aside and start on the second. Then it happens again!

My biggest sewing, knitting, or crochet challenge is being a perfectionist. I want everything to be as nice and perfect as I can get it, so when something goes a little wrong or gets out of line, It always ends up seeming like nothing is up to my standards and I always feel the need to start over when it’s all actually just fine.

Happy New Year everyone! My biggest sewing challenge is completing one sewing projects for my two granddaughters before they arrive at my house with their newest wish list. My seven year old granddaughter received some type of a clothing and accessory “designing” kit and is having a wonderful time designing her clothes and asking Grandma to turn them into reality. And of course each outfit must have matching outfit for their AG dolls.

Reading the comments so many are saying their biggest challenge is finding time to sew. I certainly understand that as it is my biggest challenge right now as I’m a caregiver for my disabled husband. And much of my time is taken up caring for him but I REALLY miss making doll clothes.

My biggest challenge is staying focused on one project long enough to finish it. There are so many cute patterns and projects, I tend to jump from one project to another, and have trouble really finishing one before starting the next. I also get interrupted in the projects which makes it difficult to get back to finish them.

I live in Northern Alberta, Canada; I have a granddaughter in Ca and Us with American Girl Dolls; my biggest issue is getting material to make them matching outfits since I am considered isolation and 5 hrs drive from the nearest fabric store. When I get shopping either in US or Can I really stock up. Love making the girls clothes for their 18" and 14" dolls

My biggest sewing challenge is light: at this time of year in Alaska, even using an overhead light, a pole Ott light, a table Ott light, and a 4-light library lamp, I can barely see the stitches…even using a magnifier! In the summer, it is the opposite, but I’m always outdoors gardening or hiking.

My biggest sewing challenge is merely finding the time in which to do it. Our older son and his two year old son live with us now. I don’t even get to get out of my grandson’s sight to go in the bathroom by myself anymore! He’ll only be this little and this attached to me for a while, though, so sewing can wait.

We love Pixie Fairie patterns and the teaching series. My 3 granddaughters have all learned to sew using these tools. I’m so sad that the youngest is now 13 and says she’s too old to play with dolls. But I love to see my girls apply the techniques they have learned and are now designing and sewing their own clothes. Thanks for it all.
